    Default Bushkill Dam

    This Dam is slated to be torn down and allow the Bushkill to flow naturally. The township is tearing the dam down to discourage people from swimming in that area. Thought I would take a couple of images before they start taking it down.

    Can you tell the difference?

    there does not seem as much difference as you would expect from an exposure 8 times as long

    Nice shots, the both. There's very little in them, with the water very slightly more milky in the longer exposure, as expected. I think I slightly prefer #1, although can't quite put my finger on why!

    I'll agree with the others, first one for me too. I'm not a fan on overly long water shot's where rocks etc. look like there set in gel.

    First one for me as well. I like long exposure shots with flowing water but think maybe 2secs would have been enough.

    A nice early autumnal scene but neither really improved on what I would expect a normal exposure to be. A pity nanny wants to destroy something to prevent people enjoying themselves - I thought that only happened in the UK

    Cheers,
